On Twitter now that the issue might be disagreements over the signing policy of our Director of Football - wee angry to you and me.

So in other words nobody has a f**king clue but there's no shortage of people prepared to claim any old shite for "likes".

No I was having a really good day until you popped up. I think that's a feeling that most people on hear have with yourself. 

Eh emotional meltdown over a silly wee forum is not me !

That's the spirit.

Keep your chin up.

Don't let the bastards get you down.

Stiff upper lip.

Can't think of any more inspirational quotes but you might find more online if these don't help.

My niece is a hairdresser and cuts his hair he told her he wont be moving to paisley so it's a no brainer it was never going to work I thought he would have left earlier to be honest.

I think this hit the nail. Rumours were he was looking at Bridge of Weir ( were I went to the Cubs 71-73 :whistle)

Clearly he is wanting to commute and GLS wants him close at hand- conflict- Stand Off - New Manager

Why would you be raging? The budget is the budget.  If he doesn't like it he can leave.

A club our size cant spend money we don't have. We've been down that road before.

I would be raging at the continual  public spouting that the SHOULD be top 4 or top 6.

It drives people away, it potentially puts new mangers and signing under undue pressure. 

It shouldn't even be getting spoken about unless they are willing to cough up a budget to match their quite frankly, idiotic public expectations. If the budget is the reason then they are 100% at fault for bringing up the nonsensical expections but wanting it done on the cheap.

The commute thing could be a cover up when in fact Kearney is not happy with how the board went behind his back and appointed Gus who now controls all signings. He probably has kept his mouth shut until the end of the season and has now addressed it with the board.

Our chairman also then goes on TV and discusses Kearney’s commuting publicly. Kearney probably brought this issue up now that they’re all back again and it’s kicked off from there.

Really not bothered if he stays or goes. Should have been sorted the day after the Dundee united game.

Exactly, we never learn. Nothing gets done until everyone’s back from holiday. That’s not how you run a top flight football club!!

There’s something about GLS and the board and how they’ve dealt with things in the last couple of years that doesn’t sit well. 

Goodwin might sense that and turn the job down if we approach him.

I think a fair few decent potential managers would view it the same. The job has become a poison chalice working with our chairman.

I am sure Scottish Manger of the Year Jack Ross would agree with you :blink:

If these rumours are true, is there likely to a queue of managers willing to work with our trigger happy chairman ?

Exactly, but it seems this club continually conspires to not be a top flight club despite its fans unconditional support.

Currently issues clearly emanating from the BoD and Executive level. It's just lunacy and a seeming inability to deal professionally with this business. Barnum and Bailey must be in these meetings somewhere.

We must be the most consistently bonkers and fruit bat mad club to support.

I'm surprised that so many people seem to think Scott is the problem. I wouldn't call him trigger happy because he's got rid of poor managers.

Rae and Stubbs definitely fall into that category, and Kearney is on the cusp.

Every manager we've had under Scott, bar Rae, has been allowed to sign close to entirely new squad, hardly a poisonous act.

MacPhersons appointment appears to have worked with our January signings, and it's vital that we have someone at the club with the oversight and knowledge of transfer dealings. Along with another pair of eyes to scout opposition and players.

He got it wrong with Stubbs, quickly made a change to fix that, and although I don't think Kearney is the right choice, plenty of fans do, but our overall form and performances under him is enough to get rid of him, even without any other background drama.
